  1. Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings is a rock record in the grandest and most polished sense of the word: it wears its lineage proudly, and imparts emotions directly and brazenly honestly no matter how pretty or shiny the picture is.

    More of the same music from Counting Crows, a band that I've loved now for over 15 years, but felt a bit cold about this piece. Overall, this is not a particularly serious album, and it hurts the quality of the songs for me, which feel very fluffly overall. A few standouts ("Cowboys", "Washington Square", "Le Ballet Dor") are filled in with mostly forgettable stuff ("Insignificant" being especially well named). If you like Counting Crows a lot, I would probably buy it, but there's nothing here that distinguishes itself from better albums like "Recovering the Satellites". Full Review »
